Subject: 3rd show
Subject: Hidden gem
The first set is pretty standard stuff for the era, although the opening Bertha/Greatest Story is outstanding.
The second set has a really organic feel to it. The band seems to be taking their time and letting it develop. It also feels really intimate, as if it were being performed in a small theater rather than an arena like the Centrum. That might be partly due to the recording.
The Slipknot here is insane, and the Jerry is melting the fretboard on Samson. After that, the show gets pretty jammy and spacey. The Eyes of the World just feels so smooth and somewhat ethereal. Coming out of drums is more of a true jam than the Space we've become used to with at least one of the drummers out there for pretty much the whole thing. The Other One is all at once spacey, mellow, and the opposite of mellow.
There's a false start at the beginning of Stella Blue where Jerry seems to have forgotten the words, but then Jerry keeps playing, resulting in the longest intro to the song that I've ever heard. This is also one of the dreamiest versions of Stella Blue you'll find anywhere. Really beautiful.
A couple of rockers caps it off.
